Speedway fans of Orzeł Łódź were set for a long break as their team will compete next in Gdansk, following their last match in Częstochowa on the 17th of July. In fact, the wait until the next match at home is even longer as Orzeł’s next home match only takes place on the 28th of July when they welcome Częstochowa to the Orzeł stadium.
However, help is near and it comes in form of the “Skrzydlewska Cup”, a competition of amateur riders battling it out on Saturday, 30th of July, in the hope to lift the Skrzydlewska Cup at the end of the afternoon. Following last year’s successful event, with several hundred fans in the stands at the Orzeł stadium, the cup is back this Saturday with 16 hopeful riders competing. Last year, it was Leszek Nowicki claiming overall victory, with Tomasz Dutka and Radosław Maciejewski taking 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
This year’s Skrzydlewska Cup will take place on Saturday, 30th of July, at 15:00 at the Orzeł stadium in Łódź. Admission for fans is free of charge.
